Did you know that in your company probably half of the ongoing projects are superfluous, or why it is misplaced ambition to want to motivate employees, or why it is sometimes better not to set up teams? Prof. Dr. Guido Quelle and his colleagues provide the answers to these and many other questions. Corporate change projects tend to fail both because of their imprecise definition as well as their inconsistent implementation. This book shows how stringent methodology can contribute to not merely drafting corporate issues but to implement such projects in a targeted way. The book presents ideas and approaches all of which can actually be put into practice because they are taken from practice.
Prof. Dr. Guido Quelle is an entrepreneur, consultant, author, speaker and expert for profitable growth. In the course of over 20 years, his consulting company, Mandat Managementberatung GmbH, has supported more than 120 multi‐national and middle‐sized companies and organizations in achieving sustainable success. His clients are active board members, general managers and entrepreneurs who are committed to taking the right steps today so that they will be set up for tomorrow.
